A visit from Fownhope pupils delight the residents at Brockhampton Court

Pupils in year 4 at St Mary’s School, Fownhope visited Brockhampton Court last Thursday to share their harvest celebration and collect a cheque.

Staff at Brockhampton Court had raised £350 by dressing up as pupils at St Trinians and taking part in a sumo wrestling afternoon.

The money will be used by the school to provide furniture and resources for a new classroom for year 4 so that they can have their own teaching space.

Dr Christopher Allen, owner of Brockhampton Court welcomed the youngsters and gave them a short history of the house. The children performed a harvest poem and a song for the residents.
